Colin Thiele’s Wish List

The National Centre chose to complete our holdings of Colin Thiele because he was such an influential and prolific Australian author for children. He published books for over forty years, and his works have been continuously reprinted, made into new editions, translated and sold overseas. We are trying to collect not only each title, but each edition and sometimes even reprints of each title. Given Colin Thiele’s long standing and his many, many titles, this is quite an undertaking. Any help will be gratefully received.
